    between the Short and Middle sides, the Short and Long Sides, and The Middle and Long sides, for triples that start with an even number. Middle Side - Short Side = Relationship. (4n� + 4n) - (4n + 2) = Relationship 2n� - 1 = Relationship Relationship= 4n� - 2

    30 x 11 = 330 2 Perimeter of a triangle = side + side + side = 11 + 60 + 61 = 132 3) 13, 84, 85 The formula for Area of a triangle is: 1/2 x b x h Area = 1/2 x 84 x 13 = 84

    � 5 = 50 + 10 = 60 Side 'h' It is obviouse that the set of results found for side 'h' are just one plus to the results of side 'b' Middle side 'b' Longest side (Hypotenuse) 'h' 4 + 1 5 12 + 1 13 24 + 1

    So I took my formula for 'a' (2n + 1) multiplied it by 'n' to get '2n2 + n'. I then added my other 'n' to get '2n2 + 2n'. This is a parabola as you can see from the equation and also the graph I will now test it using the first three terms.

  2. Beyond Pythagoras.

    The first middle length side is 4, 4 x 2 = 8 so if I add 8 to 4 it would equal 12, the next would be 4 x 3 = 12 so if I add 12 to 12 it would equal to 24, the next would be 4 x
